The following is a selection of work completed.
A senior executive of a major Japanese hotel chain and his team travelled to Australia for a range of opportunities to generate brand awareness of their hotels and resorts to the Australian public. The visit involved an interview with an Australian business and finance newspaper, a business meeting, and a speech at a lunch for journalists followed by interviews with several media outlets. I provided interpreting services for the interview, business meeting, and media event.
